At 180,753 square feet and a budget of $100 million, the new Selkirk Regional Health Centre has a total of 65 beds, including 55 medical/surgical beds, six obstetrics and four special care beds. To improve patient comfort and privacy, more than 80 per cent of the rooms are single-bed rooms, compared to 20 per cent in the previous building. The facility has been designed to facilitate expansions in the future to meet population growth and additional services that could be offered at the hospital.
In addition to the new birth unit and out-patient centre, core services include surgery, obstetrics, medicine, diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation therapies, community cancer outreach, dialysis, chemotherapy and palliative care. The hospital has an emergency department with continuous physician coverage.
The health centre was built to LEED silver standard. Other environmental technologies include high efficiency water closets and faucets, and ground-source heat pump technology for total cooling demand and 75 per cent of heating demand. Construction of the Selkirk Regional Health Centre was completed in 2014.
